Starting from Square One? Here's How to Start Playing the Saxophone

1. Buy or rent a saxophone and supplies

If you don't have a saxophone yet, you can buy new or used, or rent an instrument. Our buying guide goes over different options for buying or renting a saxophone, as well as the other supplies you will need to have.

Are Play's Lessons Good For Adults and School-Aged Students?

Yes, our online saxophone lessons are a good fit for middle-school students through adults.
